This page lists Matrix-related software, and their status in Debian. Please feel free to package any of the software listed on this page that hasn't already been packaged or ITPed!


Packaging team uses Salsa with a mailing list.

Discussion about Matrix packaging takes place in #debian-matrix:matrix.org (logs older logs).

Some useful notes will be on in official blog. If you are subscribed to Planet Debian you will see them there.

You may find some useful information about using of Salsa for packaging of software in the Debian Science Policy Manual. All rules about level of access, creation of git repositories and such like are similar in both teams. Just have in mind the specifics of our team (another group on Salsa, another mailing list, etc.).


Clients not available yet

  • matrix-element (upstream) - formerly Riot

    • depends on a lot of JavaScript packages that are not yet in Debian, including

      • velocity (note: Element uses a patched version)
    • depends on Electron, which is not yet in Debian
      • Electron no longer supports 32-bit Linux, so may be difficult to get into Debian

        • only the desktop application requires Electron; the webapp would work without
  • fractal (upstream)

    • some Rust crates have been packaged; help in packaging the rest is welcome
  • gomuks (upstream)

  • matrix-fest (upstream)

    • requires rust nightly, so probably can't be packaged yet
  • nachat (upstream) - seems abandoned upstream

  • matrix-circle (upstream)

  • neochat (upstream)
